The New York Jets have acquired another wide receiver picking up Percy Harvin from the Seattle Seahawks.
Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer first broke the news of a trade for Harvick. In exchange for the 26-year-old the Seahawks will net a conditional draft pick.
Harvin had been considered questionable for Sunday’s game against St. Louis after missing Thursday’s practice with a thigh injury. He will now have a full week off as the Jets played on Thursday night.

In five games with the Seahawks this season Harvin caught 22 passes for 133 yards. He had added 11 rushes for 92 yards and a touchdown.
The Seahawks acquired Harvin from Minnesota in March of 2013 and then signed him to a new six-year deal worth $67 million that included $25.5 million guaranteed. He wold not play until Week 11 of the 2013 season and then sat out until the playoffs. In Super Bowl XLVIII he returned the opening kickoff of the second half 87 yards for a touchdown.
Harvin becomes the second high profile wide receiver who played in the Super Bowl a year ago to end up on the Jets. In the offseason the team signed Eric Decker as a free agent.
